Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 13:14

_ _ But — to sum up all in one word.

_ _ put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ — in such wise that Christ only may be seen in you (see 2 Corinthians 3:3; Galatians 3:27; Ephesians 4:24).

_ _ and make no provision — “take no forethought.”

_ _ for the flesh, to fulfil the lust thereof — “Direct none of your attention to the cravings of your corrupt nature, how you may provide for their gratification.”

_ _ Note,

_ _ (1) How gloriously adapted is Christianity for human society in all conditions! As it makes war directly against no specific forms of government, so it directly recommends none. While its holy and benign principles secure the ultimate abolition of all iniquitous government, the reverence which it teaches for magistracy, under whatever form, as a divine institution, secures the loyalty and peaceableness of its disciples, amid all the turbulence and distractions of civil society, and makes it the highest interest of all states to welcome it within their pale, as in this as well as every other sense — “the salt of the earth, the light of the world” (Romans 13:1-5).

_ _ (2) Christianity is the grand specific for the purification and elevation of all the social relations; inspiring a readiness to discharge all obligations, and most of all, implanting in its disciples that love which secures all men against injury from them, inasmuch as it is the fulfilling of the law (Romans 13:6-10).

_ _ (3) The rapid march of the kingdom of God, the advanced stage of it at which we have arrived, and the ever-nearing approach of the perfect day — nearer to every believer the longer he lives — should quicken all the children of light to redeem the time, and, seeing that they look for such things, to be diligent, that they may be found of Him in peace, without spot and blameless (2 Peter 3:14).

_ _ (4) In virtue of “the expulsive power of a new and more powerful affection,” the great secret of persevering holiness in all manner of conversation will be found to be “Christ IN US, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27), and Christ ON US, as the character in which alone we shall be able to shine before men (2 Corinthians 3:8) (Romans 13:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 13:11-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 13:14

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ — Herein is contained the whole of our salvation. It is a strong and beautiful expression for the most intimate union with him, and being clothed with all the graces which were in him. The apostle does not say, Put on purity and sobriety, peacefulness and benevolence; but he says all this and a thousand times more at once, in saying, Put on Christ. And make not provision — To raise foolish desires, or, when they are raised already, to satisfy them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 13:14

But (l) put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].

(l) To put on Christ is to possess Christ, to have him in us, and us in him.
